Abstract: It was the purpose of this study to develop a framework for an articulation plan to transfer credits for courses from two- to four-year public educational institutions in North Carolina. In 1981, 109,951 students were enrolled in the 58 institutions in the North Carolina Community College System. The problem precipitating the study was the lack of a plan whereby these students could transfer credits to institutions in the North Carolina University System. Only those students following a prescribed program of study in the College Transfer programs in the 23 community colleges in the system could transfer credits to the University System. A search was made of the education professional literature, and the articulation plans for higher education in other states were studied. Data were solicited through the use of a questionnaire mailed to the chief administrative officer of the two-year public postsecondary institutions in all 50 states. The 43 states (86 percent) from which data were received enrolled approximately 97 percent of students attending public two-year postsecondary educational institutions in the United States as of October, 1981. The states rated their plans using criteria developed by the researcher based on information gathered from the literature.
